True story: Frank The Cabbie is a loyal listener to KFAI, and always listens to CFTP on Friday nights as he's driving around town. Well, a passenger gets in right as I start the song by Dof. He's in the back seat not more than two seconds when Frank notices that his eyes are closed and he's leaning against the window. Frank thinks, "Oh, great. He's dead. It was bound to happen sooner or later - Ron played a song so bad that it killed someone." So he calls the radio station to talk to me, and just as he's explaining that he thinks the guy's dead, the guy weakly mutters, "I'm not dead..." The power of radio...
